“François is an amateur boxer – not just to let off steam, but also to exercise his passion for strategy and tactics. And this transpires in his work.”

What do computers and boxing have in common? Without missing a beat, François will tell you that in both fields, you need to keep calm and analyze the situation. The worst thing you can do is panic. It’s all about sizing up your opponent (i.e. the challenge), and leave instincts and emotions at the door.

A lot of professional boxers have a knack for zeroing in on their opponent’s weakness and using it to their advantage. That leads to systematically brilliant solutions, because the boxer thought about it before simply flailing his arms in all directions. The good thing about this approach is that you tend to hit the target every time.
